Dear Anon, I am hoping you meant "vaginal" herpes and not virginal herpes. I am now aware of the latter. However, vaginal herpes is considered "genital" herpes and it is a very contagious occurance.

There are two types: Herpes Simplex 1 and Herpes Simplex 2. Genital herpes is the second type and the most serious of the two as it is linked to cervical cancer, nerve damage and shingles. I suggest you ask your doctor to take a sample of the blisters to get it analized in the lab. This will help confirm which type you have. In the meantime, your frequent flare up may be due to stress and poor nutrition. Stay away from corn, nuts, chocolate, coffee as these products trigger epidoses. Stress reduction may be necessary. Among natural supplements, you may want to consider taking Lysine. It is a natural amino acid that helps slow down the reoccurance of the blisters.

This is the best website for genital herpes (called "herpes simplex virus, or HSV):

American Social Health Association (ASHA).

You can do a lot of things to help reduce symptoms and breakouts. There is no cure, but there is very effective treatment options!

Have you been diagnosed with genital herpes?

There are several treatment options that you can read about here. Have you tried any of the prescription antiviral medications? There is also medication for the oral herpes that can suppress breakouts.
